My youngest is trying her hand at blogging today. She spent a day last week photo journaling her day. These are her pictures and her words. This is what a day in the life of a nine-year-old homeschooler is like.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 9 am Morning Meetup
Each morning everyone meets for Morning Meetup. During this time, we start our day, discuss what we’ll be doing, and work on any family subjects.
This is a calendar of our days in school. We do this every morning.
This is my planner where I write all my stuff for the day.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 11 am Meals On Wheels
Once a week, we deliver meals to the elderly with our local Meals On Wheels. The girls are responsible for certain aspects of the delivery.
Meals on Wheels is a thing we do on certain days. I put my milk in here to deliver to elderly people.
This is one of the buildings where we deliver for Meals on Wheels.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 12 pm Individual Work
After Morning Meetup, the girls move on to their individual work. Some of this is independent work and some of it requires guidance from mom.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: Science
I do this every day to see about the weather. This tells which direction the wind is blowing.
This tells what the temperature is outside.
This is the chart I use to write everything down for 15 days.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: History
We are reading Caroline in our history.
I’m reading it to my mom.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: Language Arts
This is my copywork for the week. Today I am doing dictation.
This is my Latin quiz. I only have quizzes on certain days.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 2 pm The County Fair
Nearly every day, we have an out-of-the-house activity like ballet, art, or a field trip. This week our county fair was in town, so we went to the fair to do a little exploring.
This is my art that I put in the fair. I won first and third place.
A Day in the Life of a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler: 5 pm End of the Day
I get to watch Roku every day after I have all my school and chores done.
Not every day includes a trip to the fair, but not every day in our homeschool is the same. Homeschooling gives us the freedom to make an impromptu trip to the fair, museum, or a nature walk. Education isn’t always found in a book. Sometimes learning comes best from exploring.
Linking Up With Other iHomeschool Bloggers:
Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children. I can often be found reading a good book (or even sometimes just an okay book) and enjoying a jar of Nutella — don’t judge. I blog, here, at HideTheChocolate.com when I’m not creating book clubs and making lists…lots and lots of lists (it’s an addiction). Learn more…
